What is the setting and time period of your adventure story?


Just what the question says. Curious to hear if there’s a trend in adventure stories in terms of where they happen and what time period are they in.

Mine is modern day, and the locations are kind of all over the world: UK, Greece, Germany, Switzerland… there’s a lot of travel my characters do between countries for the purpose of the story.


Mine is also modern day. My character goes to school, church, and a few fun places. She doesn’t go places very often.


It seems like it’s really hard to write an adventure story in a non-modern setting without crossing genres - a lot of times, going to the past gives it a more fantasy-esque feel, whereas going to the future makes it more sci-fi. I dunno, the adventure genre is fascinating to me because it’s so hard to pin down.
